Maximizing productivity, minimizing downtime.

Zero Downtime, Maximum Productivity

What is TPM?

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), as a Lean Manufacturing methodology, is a company-wide initiative for maximizing the effectiveness and longevity of equipment.


The goal of the TPM program is to significantly increase labor and capital productivity while, at the same time, increasing employee morale and job satisfaction.


TPM brings equipment management into focus as a necessary and vitally important part of the business.


Targeted at all levels of the organization, TPM and its eight pillars provide the necessary process and tools to achieve zero defects, zero breakdowns and zero accidents.

This is done through a thorough assessment of organizational performance against the requirements of an internationally benchmarked TPM excellence framework.
